  • Possibility of biomass gasification in tea manufacturing industries in Assam, India

    Tea manufacturing industries in India use natural gas, tea drying oil, wood, and coal for process heat. India is the second largest producer of tea [(1,137.07, China 1,761.00) million kilogram] in 2012. About 0.6–1.2 kg of coal is required to produce one kilogram of dried tea with average moisture of 2.5–3 percentage (w.b.). Biomass gasification is an established renewable energy technology for ...

  • Geothermal Energy Technologies

    Technology Overview   Nowhere is the raw power of geothermal resources more evident than at the Old Faithful geyser at Yellowstone National Park. (Joel Renner)  Geothermal energy is natural heat from the Earth's interior where temperatures reach greater than 7000°F. The heat is brought to the surface as steam or hot water—created when water flows through heated, permeable ...


  • Solar power generation by photovoltaic technology

    The various forms of solar energy, solar heat, solar photovoltaic, solar thermal electricity, and solar fuels offer a clean, climate-friendly, very abundant and in-exhaustive energy resource to mankind.

  • Bioenergy opportunities in the pulp and paper and sawmill industries

    Fernando Preto said the Canada Centre for Mineral and Energy Technology (CANMET) Energy Technology Centre in Ottawa is “not a fundamental research lab…. We help industry develop technologies.” The Biomass and Renewables Group “took a different approach, asking, ‘What’s the converted value of one dry tonne of wood?’” Preto’s team made a number of assumptions about pellet-generated heat, power, and ...

  • Bioenergy and the convergence of the markets for fuel, food, and fibre

    Don Roberts said four key variables are driving the economics of biofuel production: the price of fossil fuels, the cost of the feedstock, the “plethora” of conversion technology, and regulations, which stimulate demand. These variables are in flux, which presents a dilemma for investors, who “hate uncertainty.” Conversion technologies are at varying stages of market readiness. As “some of the ...
